Brewed with plenty of malt, hops and love, Ayinger Maibock is a big-bodied beer with a sweet, malty aroma, a rousing head and a fruity long lasting aftertastaste.

Every spring when they come; I just love them and after a month, no they are too strong...So what can I say, it´s good that they are seasonal...

The aftertaste is encouraging. It has been a long time since i have actually looked forward to finishing a beer. Nice and Dark. Good social beer also.

Great deep golden color, but full white head retention could be better. Deep Munich malt aroma w/ some grainy, toasty, & raisiny aromas present. Flavor is malty, malty, malty and lightly toasty; a little nutty as well; no hop flavor, very well balanced w/ a dry finish and a malty aftertaste. Medium body w/ moderate carbonation and slightly dry, not astringent m/f. Pretty much everything I'd expect from a maibock...very malty and drinkable. It would be a staple in my fridge except for the fact that it is not (or should not be)available all year 'round.

Cloudy body under frothy disapating head. Aroma of fat, rich malt. The flavor is brilliant, huge, sweet, Germanic pale malt. None of the hops you find in Einbecker: this is simply a tribute to what tremendous amounts of pale malt can produce. What an unforgettable experience. And I thank Hopsrus for it.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2003 Malty sweet aroma. Orangish color, slightly cloudy. Tasty bock, sweet with a taste that is similiar to aroma.

My last brew of the day and thankfully because it's getting hard to rate with all this beer in me.Nice golden color,very slight head.Aroma was malty sweet,with the flavor being the same but pleasantly so,with some slight fruit tones to it but that could be the last brew i had talking back.The after taste was fantastic malty sweet some of the same fruit tones hard to describe what fruit it is exactly but very nice.i definately need to get some more of these.

A sweet, yet appealing very malty beer. Hint of fruits in the nose. A winner!

One of the better bocks around. Decent head and color. Plenty of malt is an understatement. This beer is extremely malty without going over the top, the sweetness is a pleasent offset from the malt.

i gotta concur with the raving raters here, this is a true "GFB" (great f*ckin’ beer). deceptively plain-jane lager yellow with a modest peach fuzz head. a thing of beauty is revealed in the aroma, however, splendid malty pretzel and subtle dark fruits. i’m not a taster who lauds the "masking" of alcohol: bring it on, i say. like in a good scotch, it’s a powerful attribute i love in the stronger beers. this sweet maibock is a 1000 watt-amped oktoberfest. another doppelquaffer from ayinger.
